HOW TO MAKE CARROT BUTTERSCOTCH TOFFEE POKE CAKE

 

You may notice I bake a lot of desserts with the combination of butterscotch and toffee.  It has become a family favorite combination of ingredients.  I just had to add butterscotch and toffee to a carrot cake.  To make this Carrot Butterscotch Toffee Poke Cake, I start with a baked carrot cake mix.   Next, I poked holes in the cake with the back of a wooden spoon.  Then, I added a jar of thick Butterscotch ice cream topping.  Last, I top the carrot cake and butterscotch with a homemade cream cheese icing.  I figured if I was saving time using a boxed cake at least I could make the icing homemade.  

The best part of a carrot cake is a homemade cream cheese frosting.   After adding the icing to the cake, I added a bag of Heath English Toffee Bits.  YUM!  I hope you try this Carrot Butterscotch Toffee Poke Cake.  It is fantastic!

I adapted this recipe from Betty Crocker.  The original recipe did not call for shredded carrots.  The carrots add a lot to a carrot cake.  I also added a homemade cream cheese icing topped with toffee bits.  A carrot cake is not complete without the cream cheese frosting.
